A to Z Challenge { J }

We interrupt the regularly scheduled blog posts
 for April's A to Z Challenge!
I'm testing my writing skills with fiction.
These may consist of an opening paragraph, or might even end up as an entire short-story.
I have no idea where my fingers and keyboard will take me
as I'm inspired with each day's corresponding letter.
Take the journey with me!
I look forward to your feedback.
Today's letter:  J
As Jacqueline jumped away from the jamocha being jettisoned just before her jaconet jimswinger, she leveled a jettatura at the jobbernawl who, with joss, caught the jug just in time. As she was about to let loose with a jobation, Jacqueline was quite jarred to realize the miscreant was only a jackanapes. She jocoseriously glared at 'junior' as she conjured up her childhood, almost juvenescent once again.

Special thanks to Noah Webster and his Unabridged Dictionary for the 'J' words

jaconet...stout cotton cloth
jimswinger...frock coat
jettatura...evil eye
jobbernawl...a blockish or stupid head
joss...luck, fate
jobation...tedious scolding
jackanapes...impudent child
jocoseriously...half in jest
juvenescent...becoming youthful

What do you miss, if anything, from your childhood?
Happy Tuesday!
